5 “Look eamong the nations and watch—
Be utterly astounded!
For I will work a work in your days
Which you would not believe, though it were told you.
6 For indeed I am fraising up the Chaldeans,
A bitter and hasty gnation
Which marches through the breadth of the earth,
To possess dwelling places that are not theirs.
Their judgment and their dignity proceed from themselves.
8 Their horses also are hswifter than leopards,
And more fierce than evening wolves.
Their cavalry comes from afar;
They fly as the ieagle that hastens to eat.
Their faces are set like the east wind.
They gather captives like sand.
And princes are scorned by them.
They deride every stronghold,
For they heap up earthen mounds and seize it.
11 Then his 5mind changes, and he transgresses;
He commits offense,
jAscribing this power to his god.”
